My new go-to bday present


This "build-your-own-fort-kit" has been a big hit with the birthday kiddos and their parents, it is inexpensive and easy to put together, which is why it is my new go-to bday present!

I got the idea from Saltwater Kids, this post. She got the idea from Bloom, this post. And since then I have seen it at Design Dazzle, this post. Or with a superhero twist here at Grosgrain.

I've only included one twin size sheet and about 10 clothespins but the other tutorials have several sheets and more clips. I've also been using a matching pillowcase cut in half and lined with a coordinating print, then made into a drawstring bag, which just seemed easier to me but you could just use the pillow case the way it is or any other bag you find.

And on a related note, but also for any number of other fun projects, you can design your own tags on Picnik using this tutorial at Homemade by Jill or this one at The Mother Huddle. There is another one on the Picnik Blog right here, and they link this post at Wordplay. Or you can just use the tags at the bottom of the post from Saltwater Kids. Whew! That is a whole lot of links!! I hope you use them and make a fort kit for some luck little guy or gal!
